Help Needed with SOA Record Warnings for

Hi Cloudflare Community,

I’m currently facing a couple of warnings regarding the SOA (Start of Authority) records for my domain, []. The specific warnings are:

  1. SOA Serial Number Format is Invalid
  2. SOA Expire Value out of recommended range

As I understand, SOA records are managed automatically by Cloudflare, and I don’t have direct access to modify these settings in my dashboard. I’m reaching out for advice on how to address these warnings. Has anyone encountered similar issues? If so, how were you able to resolve them?

Furthermore, if there are any general recommendations for ensuring that my domain’s DNS settings are optimized and within best practices, I’d be very grateful to hear them.

Thank you in advance for your help!


Ignore it. MXToolbox gets that wrong every time. I didn’t even need to read past your headline before knowing that is what you were concerned about.

Those warnings are not relevant and no action beyond ignoring them need be taken.


Thank you!
